Ed Sheeran Coveres Britney Spears on 'Undateable'

(Radio.com) Tuesday night's live episode of Undateable featured a guest appearance by Ed Sheeran playing himself, who opened the show playing about a minute and a half of an acoustic version of his single "Photograph" on an open mic night.

It's a long shot, especially on a TV show, for an artist. While his troubadour act charms most of the cast, one guy named Justin doesn't know who he is. "You have potential, you do. I just wouldn't quit your day job yet," the character says. This leads to a running joke for the full hour-long episode about him not knowing who Ed Sheeran is that leads to a running joke where everyone hits Justin all night because Sheeran tweeted that his followers should "give him a smack for me."

The show closes with Sheeran doing an acoustic cover of Britney Spears' "'Baby One More Time" while accompanied by Victoria Justice and, at some point, plants a big wet one on Justin. Read more here.
